Honeywell Announces New TotalFreedom Software Plug-ins EasyParse

Posted June 28, 2012

New TotalFreedom Software Plug-ins EasyParse for Motor Vehicle Documents (MVD) and EasyParse for GS1

Honeywell’s new EasyParse for Motor Vehicle Documents plug-in parses the bar code data on US government-issued non-identity documents and compliments the TotalFreedom plug-in for identity documents, EasyDL. Ideal for accelerating e-citation and/or vehicle inspection applications, EasyParse for Motor Vehicle Documents enables users to transmit data fields for vehicle titles and registrations used by police departments, motor vehicle agencies, vehicle service centers and other organizations, improving administrative efficiency and customer satisfaction by reducing wasted time associated with document renewal, inspection and verification.

Honeywell’s EasyParse for GS1 software plug-in parses application identifiers (AI) found in various bar code symbologies as outlined in the GS1 General Specifications, and delivers the selected data sets in the format supported by the host application. Organizations in many industries—including retail, healthcare, transportation and logistics, consumer electronics manufacturing and defense—have a need to achieve compliance with various GS1 Sunrise initiatives in order to maximize efficiency and maintain positive trade relationships. For example, retail customers with the Easy Parse for GS1 plug-in can more easily parse the longer 70 character coupon codes to extract only the promotional items that are of interest to their point-of-sale (POS) software. And, with this plug-in, retailers no longer need to invest in a costly and time intensive core POS software upgrade to be able to meet the GS1 General Specifications.

Feel free to contact us to obtain these new plug-ins for your Honeywell devices.

The Next Generation Warehouse : Long Range Scanning and the Emergence of 2D Barcodes

Posted June 14, 2012

Introduction

Today’s warehouses are rapidly evolving as they seek to keep up with a variety of new requirements and advancements in technology. Processes traditionally using 1-dimensional bar codes are becoming more accurate, more efficient, and more robust through the transition to 2d symbologies. Offering superior data storage capability yet compact in size, these 2d symbols are ideal for cradle-to-grave tracking of products and serialization. As imaging technology progresses, businesses are poised to take advantage of the benefits of implementing 2d while continuing to accommodate the long range scanning requirements typical in the warehouse environment.

Driving this transition is the growing need to track individual parts from assembly to shipment and beyond for information and traceability purposes, largely imposed by company-specific or legislative requirements. A 2D bar code can accommodate significantly more information than its 1d counterpart, and in a fraction of the space, making such traceability possible.

Historically, laser scanners have been the preferred technology in warehousing because of their speed, accuracy, and ability to read at long range. however, as 2d bar codes become more common and imaging technology matures, manufacturers are now discovering what imagers have to offer in terms of flexibility, traceability, and legislative standards compliance.
